Unique Test For Kidney Disease

2015-06-12 09:58

Unique Test For Kidney DiseaseXiaoxue is suffering from kidney disease and she has gone to several hospitals. But there is no obvious effect.

The test reports in her local hospital:

Blood urine examination: Hemoglobin is 70.0g/L

Urine examination: Urine protein 4+, Urine occult 2+

Liver function: total protein 49.30m/L, albumin 20.8g/L

Kidney function: urea nitrogen 10.3mmol/L, creatinine 178umol/L and uric acid 618umol/L

The doctor tells her that the diagnosis is not definite. The temporary diagnosis is chronic nephritic syndrome, chronic kidney failure, renal hypertension and renal anemia so doctor only treats nephritis.

If you want to get definite diagnosis, it is a must to do renal biopsy.

Without renal biopsy, will kidney disease not be treated effectively?

Renal biopsy indeed can help make clear diagnosis. However, renal biopsy will do damages on patients’ health and may cause infection, so many patients want to take alternative test.

For example, membranous nephropathy often manifests as nephrotic syndrome. However, common steroid therapy has no obvious effect on this disease. Generally steroids and cyclophosphamide will be used together.

As for the diagnosis of membranous nephropathy, renal biopsy is usually done. But it also can be tested by checking phospholipase A2 receptor antibodies. This helps patients get rid of pain from renal biopsy.

Other unique tests include:

Urinary protein component test

This test helps to make sure which epithelial cell is damaged. Also the area and severity of damage can also be tested.

Renal tubular epithelial cell test

This test can diagnose the severity of renal tubular damage and then how to treat it.

Glomerular protein filtration index detection

This can diagnose the severity of kidney function and make clear of which kidney disease are you suffering from. In addition, this test also helps the doctor show as guidance for description.

In addition, we also have Neutrophils Gelatinases Related Lipid Carrier Protein Detection and Renal Toxins Index Detection, etc. These methods can help the doctor make a quick diagnosis.

After detailed and unique test, Xiaoxue is diagnosed with Primary Nephrotic Syndrome, Chronic Kidney Failure, Renal Hypertension, Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia and Liver Fat.

With clear diagnosis, effective treatment will be made.
